This lamp used to be one of the most common types of energy saving bulbs that
you could get on the market. It was often used to replace standard R30
floods while still delivering the same amount of light that you may have in the
area. The beam is somewhere between a flood and a spot which made ideal as
a replacement for wide area lighting to a directed light, therefore saving energy. But a lot
changed as halogen technology continued to develop, thus the ER30 flood has been widely
replaced by a halogen PAR30 instead. Although many people have replaced
these with more efficient sources, there are still many people who use them and
like the way it throws light. They're just some situations where something
that's a little bit softer may be required rather than a highly directed beam of
light that you'll get from a halogen source. These come in a couple of
different wattages and are the 50 watt and the 75 watt with a beam pattern that is somewhere
in between flood and spot. They have an elongated shape and ER stands for
elliptical reflector. They are 3.75 inches in diameter across the
reflector face and so that makes them a natural replacement for BR30 lamps.
As mentioned before, there are many other options to replace these including
halogen lamps. Sometimes that's the way to go if you really want to save
more energy and get a crisp white or light.
bulbs are a medium size and can be used in almost any recessed or track lighting
fixture that is standard today. It's not necessarily the best lamp to use in most cases, but the
cost is generally very low which makes them popular. The most common
wattage is the 75 watt ER30, sometimes also called the 75ER30 flood light.
They can be used in recessed or track lighting of almost any size. When compared to regular incandescent lighting,
longer lasting than the store bought kind making them a perfect choice for almost
any type of lighting. There are several kinds of ER30 flood light bulbs which
include the regular household base in 120 volt or 130 volt and some typical codes are 50ER30 and
75ER30. The 130 volt will last longer because it protects your bulb from
power surges and spikes. So in a home application they should last longer
as well as a commercial building where spikes and voltage fluctuations happen
much more often.
With the advent of higher electrical costs, many businesses are looking for ways
to save energy with lighting. Obviously, compact fluorescent
bulbs are the perfect choice to replace higher wattage incandescent ER30 flood
light bulbs and save energy. Just look for areas where you might use ER30
incandescent light bulbs and find the right replacement on our web site.
You will find a great reduction in your electrical bill while still getting the
amount of light that you want. Keep an eye out for electric utility
rebates in your area which might be available for compact fluorescent floods bulbs. This is more true in commercial lighting than it is for
residential as they are a larger user of electricity during the day or high
demand times. Please note that your energy savings can be very significant
when changing from incandescent floods to fluorescent flood lights over
almost any other kind of retrofit.
Remember that there are several types of ER30 flood bulbs, we describe some
of the most common used in home and commercial lighting here. Keep in mind
that we also stock all the larger incandescent and smaller types used in
commercial lighting. Whatever type you have, you will be getting a longer
